|I'm a very shy cat. I love my mom a lot, but I panic if she picks me up. Some toys scare me. Sometimes I can play a friendly game of chase with a couple of my cat-sibs, but other times I run away.
For awhile I took over the computer room, and Mom and I would spend lots of time there. But then we got a new kitten, Lurch, who eats and hangs out there. I'm afraid of him because he's new, walks strangely, and just generally exists.
Mom's tried Feliway and Rescue Remedy. She comes to wherever I am to pet me and tries to shoo away the others when they want to get in on it. There are no food treats I like well enough to entice me. There's no place private enough that she can really spend alone time with me - everyone's a bit touchy with Lurch around and wants to be with Mom. She's worried because I'm not playful either, even the silly little things I used to do like jump into the cat carrier to make her laugh.
She really believes I should have been in a one-cat house, but what to do now? Anyone have any ideas?
